There was a review of that hardware that showed it couldn't push more
than 600Mbit natively (without shaping). I felt that the ethernet
driver could be improved significantly after looking it over, but
didn't care for the 600mbit as a starting point to have to improve

Not ruling it out, though! It met quite a few requirements we have.
